The Backlash is a single-fire Nerf blaster that was released in 1995 under the Ambush Rip Rockets series.

It comes packaged with three Micro Darts.


The Backlash was designed to act as a "remote activated sniper attack" weapon. It features a large suction cup that allows the blaster to be attached to a wall or other surface; it is the only Nerf blaster designed like this. It does not feature a trigger and is instead fired via cord. The cord allows the blaster to be fired from up to three feet away.[1]


The Backlash was released as a promotional blaster for the 1997 film Batman & Robin under a new gray and black color scheme; this release gave it the name Bat Tazer. This particular blaster was notable for featuring a handle.

The Backlash was re-released alongside the rest of the Ambush Rip Rockets line in 2000 under new packaging.

Color schemes

The Backlash has been released in the following color schemes:

  • Blue, black and brown
  • Black and gray (Batman promotional blaster)
